MOTHER RAJARAJESWARI OF CHOTTANIKARA

 

THE TEMPLE COMPLEX

The most singular feature that characterises this august shrine is that there are three deities in one and the same compounds and all the relieving the victims from the evil spirits. No where such feature is seen in Kerala, or India for that matter.

This shrine like its counterparts has big a prakara, Anapandal, Nalambalam, Srikoil and Bhajanapura etc. Moreover it is built in a spacious sprawling ground. Due to munificent royal patronage it enjoyed, every structure is quite imposing with unusual in dimensions, besides majestic in appearance. Its distinctive specialty lies in having a separate, independent shrine for each one of the three august deities built almost adjacent to one another in the vast prakara. And each diety is endowed with similar power and is dealing with the wicked spirits, each in its own way within its might. 

But MOTHER Rajarajeswari's say is final. Her powers are infinite and accepted ever with mute submission, as a matter of fact.  When her benignity is sought for, she assigns the cases either to Bhadrakali at Kizhakavu or Dharmasashta according the temper of the possessing spirit and its tenacious grip over the victims.
